Animal Welfare offers tips on why you cat isn’t using the litter box


(Show aired on July 13)

While cats are sometimes seen as the perfect potty-trained pet, sometimes litter box accidents can be a common problem that frustrates cat owners.

That is also among the reasons why some cats are sent to the pound.

There are some things that you can do to not only fix the problem but understand your feline friend. 

A cat’s failure to urinate appropriately in the litter box may have several causes. A dirty litter box may cause a cat to avoid the box. One cat may faithfully use a box that is only cleaned once or twice a week, while another cat may avoid a box that has been used just once.

To encourage your cat or kitten to use the litter box make sure it is clean. Also, place the litter box in a quiet location and away from the food dish or water bowl.
